Akiba’s Trip Sequel Coming To PS4 This Holiday Season

Yep, they made a sequel.

The game that tasks you with undressing the undead has been confirmed for North America.

As publisher XSEED Games revealed on Twitter, Akiba’s Trip 2, also known as Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed will hit the PS3 and Vita on August 12.

If you’re patient, you can wait for it to land on the PS4 this holiday season. There’s no exact date but at least we know it’s coming. The goal of the game is to confront and ultimately undress vampire-like enemies that stalk the streets of Tokyo in broad daylight. Of course, because they can’t deal with the sunlight, they die. It’s an interesting concept…even if it’s blatantly sexual in nature.

The trailer is all sorts of colorful, and just a tad tongue-in-cheek.

PS4 Update 1.75 Will Add Support For 3D Blu-Ray Movies

System update 1.74 for the PlayStation 4 is currently available, but it’s not very exciting.

It was basically just another stability update; not even worth writing about. However, the next update will give PS4 owners an additional much-requested feature.

As Sony wrote on Twitter, update 1.75 will add support for 3D Blu-Ray movies, and the best part is that it’ll drop next week. This is a feature the PS3 has boasted since 2010 so one could argue that the new system is behind the times but hey, it’s a new console and the manufacturer needs time to give it that fully-featured feel.

Update 1.70 added a new video editor, DualShock 4 light bar brightness settings and pre-load support, so the inclusion of 3D Blu-Ray movies might feel a little light in comparison. Still better than just a boring ol’ stability update, though.

Samurai Warriors 4: 10th Anniversary Edition Dated For PS4

Okay, so you really have to be a fan of the series to appreciate this, but even so, it’s worth noting.

Koei Tecmo plans to celebrate a decade of battling with the upcoming Samurai Warriors 4: 10th Anniversary Edition, which is scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 4 in North America on October 24.

There’s a Special Anime Pack that will retail for $74.99, if you’re interested. Otherwise, the collectible edition includes a Blu-Ray copy of the “Samurai Warriors: Legend of the Sanada” anime, the official soundtrack CD, a bunch of character customization DLC, and of course, the game itself. Features include 55 new and updated characters, new in-battle maneuvers (including a powerful new Rage Attack), and all-new battle modes.

This really isn’t a bad franchise at all; it’s just very Japanese in style and tone, so you have to be into that sort of thing.

Don’t Be Surprised If Xbox One Finishes Third This Generation

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat:

I’ve always believed the Xbox One will eventually win the North American region in the next-gen console war. The Xbox 360′s dominance still matters and when you factor in Microsoft’s relentless marketing, I think it’s inevitable.

However, the way it’s looking right now, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the Xbox One finished third behind the PlayStation 4 and Wii U. Now, that may seem ludicrous given pitiful Wii U sales registered in 2013, but Nintendo has been surging as of late, and let’s not forget that the Wii U is getting much bigger in Japan. Not coincidentally, that’s the same country where you can’t even give away an Xbox console.

Europe is PlayStation territory; it has been for years and that shows no signs of changing. If the Wii U continues to stage its comeback in the US (and some newly announced titles might make that happen), and the PS4 at least manages to remain competitive in this region throughout the generation, I think the Xbox One will finish last. It will get crushed in all other regions, especially Europe and Japan, where both the PS4 and Wii U might prove to be much more popular. So, even if Xbox One does end up owning North America, it won’t be by much, and it won’t be enough to outstrip either Sony or Nintendo on a global scale.

And if the PS4 ends up holding sway in North America, and the Wii U really does end up flourishing in the US and Japan, the Xbox One will get obliterated. It won’t even be close. A lot of “what ifs” leap readily to mind, of course, and I’m not saying my prediction is gospel; it’s just an observation. But remember, the Xbox One couldn’t even outsell the PS4 in June after Microsoft dropped the price to $399. That is not a good sign.

Pre-Order Arkham Knight At GameStop, Play As Red Hood

As if you needed more incentive to pre-order this bad boy.

Today is “Batman Day” and to celebrate, GameStop has announced the Red Hood Story Pack. If you pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight at the world’s largest game retailer, you’ll land this downloadable content, in which you can play as Red Hood.

This pack is exclusive to GameStop, by the way. Pre-ordering will also net you the previously revealed Harley Quinn Story Pack, which features four challenge maps and of course, lets you play as the charismatic villain. It will also include “unique weapons, gadgets and abilities.” The latter pre-order bonus is available via other retailers but if you want to play as Red Hood, you’ve got to head to GameStop.

Also, don’t forget that PlayStation fans get exclusive Scarecrow nightmare missions, as announced at E3. There are all sorts of reasons to put a deposit down on one of the most anticipated titles of the new generation!

All four of these titles will be playable on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Vita, and each will also support Cross-Buy. Yep, that means that if you purchase one, you’ll get the other two versions of that particular game for free. If you buy at least two of the listed titles, you’ll earn $3 credit; buy three, and you’ll get $6; purchase all four, and you’ll get $10 to spend on the Store. And of course, being a PlayStation Plus subscriber nets you another 20 percent off (if you pre-order them).

Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris Set To Launch On December 9

Looks like the long-awaited follow-up to Guardian of Light will arrive later this year.

As Crystal Dynamics producer Scott Amos revealed to IGN, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on December 9.

Amos said it’s “something that we want to do right,” and we don’t doubt that they will. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was easily one of the best downloadable games of 2010, and remains a fantastic top-down dungeon-crawler. That’s what you can expect from Temple of Osiris, but now we get four-player co-op as opposed to just two-player action. Also, both online and local co-op will be available at the game’s launch, which is great.

The dwindling of local co-op experiences is just plain annoying, you know?
